Importing lat/long to create a route


#1

Out of WEBFLEET I can extract the exact lat/long coordinates of my stops. I like to use these to calculate some routes which I want to send to my PRO devices. Is this possible?
Otherwise I need to enter the addresses, these then need to be geocoded which can cause issues in getting the exact locations. Especially as I already have these exact locations.

The Import > WEBFLEET button will import orders with their coordinates.

If you really want to use your extracted coordinates, you can import these using the lat,lng format.

Thanks for the fast reply.
"The Import > WEBFLEET button will import orders with their coordinates."
I like the tip, but this only works when you already got your orders in.

"If you really want to use your extracted coordinates, you can import these using the lat,lng format."
Can you please elaborate a bit more on this?

cheers

When you’re using WEBFLEET the workflow we support is:

  1. Enter your orders in WEBFLEET
  2. Import orders as destinations into RouteXL
  3. Find the best route to all destinations
  4. Export route as sorted orders back to WEBFLEET

Note: step 4 allows you to remove the orders you created in step 1.

If for any reason you still wish to work with coordinates, the import textarea accepts these when you enter them as lat,lng. E.g.:

52.377290,4.909615
